OK thanks for that info. I may just change the front for now and change the rear at the same time as I do the mod. I will be going for braided steel hoses when I do.

I am considering carrying out this mod in the future on my 59 plate MK2.5, I did it on my Facelift Mk 1. What a difference it made especially with a heavy loaded car.

I do have a question about the hoses. I will be changing the brake hose set before I do the Mod and I see you changed them as part of the mod. Are the hoses different between the Drum and Disc? I don't want to get ones for the drums then in a few months time change the rear ones again. If it's just a matter of length then I would get the longer ones as these would fit both or is a more fundimental difference such as the fitting at the caliper end?

Hi, Thanks for that. I don't have bluetooth unfortunatly. Might get round to installing, I have seen the how to guide on this.

Thanks again


In Topic: Bleeding Abs

11 March 2014 - 03:13 PM


So it appears that there are no special procedures to bleed the ABS system as apposed to bleeding a non ABS apart from disconnecting / reconnecting the battery. 

Not sure why disconnecting the battery is important for the ABS but who am I to question Ford.

Thanks again.

Now the better weather seems to be arriving I will do this in the next few weeks.

Just slightly off topic has anyone any experience in the claim that fitting braided flex brake hoses improves brake responce and feel?
